Question Dinan?

As some of you may know (if you saw my intro thread) I just got a new 06 M3.

A buddy of mine had a 1997 M3 w/ Dinan chip, exhaust, headers, intake and I believe some suspension work. I must say that thing hauled ass.

By this time next summer I am planning on dopping a little bit of money into my M3 but I am not sure about which company I should use.

I am not looking to turbo or supercharge it, but I was just thinking about intake, headers, and exhaust.

Just wanted to basically hear some opinions about Dinan's work to E46 M3's or if you have Dinan products on your car.

The really nice thing about Dinan for you is that it won't affect your warranty at all. It will cost you a little money, though. They do have high quality products.

The work that Dinan does is superb for the M cars (especially the E39 M5). The M3 exhaust sounds so mean on the M3, as opposed to the exhaust made for other 3 models. I highly suggest Dinan for more than one reason:

1. Warranty concerns are eliminated
2. Quality is superb
3. They offer random 10%/20% discounts from time-to-time
4. The increases may be conservative, but I assure you that the research they have done is made specifically for BMW. They don't focus on the straight line performance from 0-60 as their primary selling goal as other companies do. "Performance is not a number on a sheet, it's a combination of tuning to a perfection."

Dinan is conviently located at some local dealers to make their package seem even more involved.

In all, I suggest Dinan for the M3.

Thumbs up

I see that Dinan has their software at 50% off thru August.
Now would be the time to get the software!
